I Mark Kolatowicz have decided to write a new story, and also decided to go another team from Scotland as that where i was born and currently live. I stay in Glasgow but i didnt want to go Rangers or Celtic so ive decided to take over as manager of Dundee United, they havent won the Premier Division since the 1982/83 season and that was something i wanted to change.

Dundee United Football Club is a Scottish professional football club located in the city of Dundee. Formed in 1909, originally as Dundee Hibernian, the club changed to the present name in 1923. United are nicknamed The Terrors or The Tangerines and the supporters are known as The Arabs.

The club has played in tangerine kits since the 1960s and have played at the present ground, Tannadice Park, since their foundation in 1909. United were founder members of the Scottish Premier League in 1998 and have been ever-present in the competition since then.

Domestically, the club has won the Scottish Premier Division on one occasion, the Scottish Cup twice and the Scottish League Cup twice. United appeared in European competition for the first time in the 1966–67 season, going on to appear in Europe in 14 successive seasons from 1976. They reached the European Cup semi-finals in 1984 and the UEFA Cup final in 1987, but lost on both occasions. Uniquely, the club has a 100% record against Barcelona in competitive European ties

A Bluenose taking over at that mob! Should make for interesting reading!
My fondest memory of Dundee is when they paid me £16m for a 35-year old Drogba on FIFA09. :D
Yay another Kolatowicz :D!!!!!!!!!!

Tactics - Pre-Season Friendlies and Transfers




These are the three tactics i will be using throughout my career as Dundee United manager, very simple tactics which i hope will be very effective, i feel the team have the correct set of players to use theese tactics to full advantage and will be looking to challegen for the title this season.


Pre-Season Friendlies


Dundee United 2 - 0 Dundee Reserves
Dundee United 2 - 0 AZ Alkmaar
Beith 0 - 2 Dundee United
Dundee United 1 - 0 OGC Nice
Glenavon 2 - 3 Dundee United
Dundee United 4 - 3 Leicester City


Transfers


I decided to raid the Brazilian market to bring in new faces to club although we had a transfer budget of £0, i thought using the option to pay the transfer fees in 48 monthly installments could leave us in debt it would work out in our favour in the end when we are winning the leagues and getting champions league football.

Ademilson
£0
£5,250,000 - 48 months
/



Mattheus
£0
£1,800,000 - 48 months
/



Wallace
£0
£4,400,000 - 48 months
/



Adryan
10th August 2012
£0
£875,000 - 48 months



Doria
1st January 2013
£0
£525,000 - 48 months



These will be the only players being brought in this season, we are currently looking for the best offer to offload some of our players but as we stand no one as made an offer deemed acceptable yet.
Nice raid. Hopefully you will win the champions league to pay off the transfers

Love it already keep it going :D
Harsh Europa draw! Good luck with getting out of that one.
I think that you can pass through to the next round with Ademilson in the helm as he is a beast. Those loans will easily challenge for a second place, but a win in the league isn't far away. I also want to see how Suarez develops :)! Kolatowicz!!
